Shepard's Prayer

"Shortly before the launch, Shepard said to himself: 'Don't fuck up, Shepard...' This quote was reported as 'Dear Lord, please don't let me fuck up' in The Right Stuff, though Shepard confirmed this as a misquote. Regardless, the latter quote has since become known among aviators as Shepard's Prayer."

Cognitively related: Space whisky.
